In 1996, Tony and his family returned to Bethany, Missouri where he became a real estate salesperson for United Farm Max Nelson & Associates. His dad and mom, Max and Judy Nelson, were the owners so it made sense for him to go into the family business. His parents have been with the United Country Real Estate Family since 1985. In 2000, Tony and Brenda purchased the real estate business from his parents and it became known as United Country Nelson Real Estate. Growing up on a farm has proven to be an asset; it has given him knowledge that has been useful for building and maintaining relationships in the rural area. Every year since purchasing, Tony’s office has finished in the top 5% of the 500 United Country Real Estate offices nationwide. Tony and Brenda live on their 240-acre farm west of Bethany where they raise their own cattle. Tony also enjoys deer, turkey and quail hunting.
